Marseille fits in very well with Stefanos after being named the ATP 250 winner for the second year in a row! The N. 6 world fought against N. 16 Canada’s Felix Auger-Aliassime and won a 6-3, 6-4 win without losing a set, lifting his second trophy in the same tournament while concluding his five wins at the finals of other important institutions.
Tsitsipas quickly managed to turn his opponent’s handicaps against him and take the lead with 2-0. Note that Tsitsipas is the second player to win the Open 13 Provence for the second consecutive year after Thomas Enqvist in 1998 while with this victory earned 250 FedEx ATP points in the standings and a staggering amount of 116,030 €.
The Marseille Open is an important source of relief for Stefanos who had a difficult year and is expected to become even more demanding as other major tennis events follow.
